    Instant Box of Crap Pass-a-Round-Robin

    Been meaning to do this for a while.
    First responder here PMs me their address. I send them a box of crap.
    Second responder here PMs the first responder. First responder sends second reponder a box of crap.
    ad nauseum
    Respond here before you PM. Gotta be strict about the pecking order.
    "As recieved" picture is a must.
    I have spoken.

    I would like a box of crap. I have plenty of crap to box up and reciprocate. The problem is that I can't send PMs yet.

    I've had a Box of Crap just waiting for this!

    So, would it be Curbtender that I would be PMing/sending to?

    I'm a little slow today due to looking at lots of little holes for the past 3 hours.

    To facilitate ensuring there's no confusion, I think this is the order of business as it stands:

    sailorbenjamin sends to
    poke em who sends to
    frenchbikefan who sends to
    pompiere (if he's in) who sends to
    curbtender who sends to
    Drillium Dude who sends to
    Henry III who sends to
    (the next lucky person who gets their groove on)

    OP - can you confirm this for us? And, if I may make a suggestion: anyone posting to this thread, please state whether or not you are here to comment or to play. That'll take the guesswork out of it. Thanks!

    Put me on the list, please. And if I may, I will request old English crap. Like that single Brampton BB cup you have kicking around, for example. Or Brooks saddle with the leather peeled up like an old avocado husk. Or the single black Bluemels Club Special fender you have hanging from the plumbing pipes over your work bench. Hey, no harm in asking, right?

    To whom do I send my address?

    OK, I get it...An 11" X 8.5" X 5.5" flat rate box will show up at your door in a week or two. Take out everything that you want and then fill it with everything you don't want.
    So this will take a while to move around.

    Um, one detail here that's not clear:

    Are we putting our own boxes together and sending immediately to the next person, or awaiting the original box to send along once it (finally) reaches us?

    If I have a vote, I vote for the former. It could take months to get to the last person on the list the other way

    Well, we each did our own boxes last winter so this time I thought it would be fun to try just one box and see how the parts selection evolved with every player. Just about as exciting as mail chess, huh?
